AMD Fx-4100 and ASUS Crosshair V overclocking help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
my goal is to overclock my 4100 to 5.5ghz atm im @ 4.5ghz with the asus auto tune and it runs @ 85 F max load i dont no much about overclocking but i no my 5.5ghz goal can be done so im here for a lil help if u can help i can get what ever data u need just let me know

You will not get 5.5ghz on any fx chip unless you have a water chiller or ln2 even then it wouldn't be able to produce those clocks for a 24/7 use. The max 24/7 stable you are going to get with any of these will be 4.9. My 8120 hits a wall at 4.84 ghz along with the 1.476 volts it needs for that clock. Those temps are way way to high, use cortemp program to monitor temps at load. ai suite should be about 70c and coretemp 61c should be your max. Just take a look around the amd cpu forum here and the amd crosshair v thread to get all the info about overclocking. The fx chips are easy to overclock but if you really want to dial this thing in to get everything it has to offer you, you should read around. Most good air coolers will get 4.6 maybe 4.7 if you have a really good one (maybe) but to get anything over 4.7 or/and up to 4.9 you need a dedicated water loop.

how could i get it to run @4.9 im runing 4.5 @ 85 F with a custom watercooled setup

Start off by manually overclocking in the bios. Turn off turbo boost and enable manual mode. Turn LLC all the way down, so we don't get voltage flying everywhere. Turn off all the power saving features and set digi vrm to the highest should be 130 and 140%. Now start off at 4.5 with 1.37500 volts. Use
Prime95(it's free) to test for stability. When you do this test, make sure your temps never reach above 61 celsius, by using the program coretemp. Now test it for up to an hour or two and if you get a sumout error, you need to increase to voltage to get it stable at that clock(anytime sumout error occurs voltage is lacking)You may also have in to increase the nb voltage by 5%. Just up your voltage by 0.006250, with a little bump in mhz every time. Just make sure to bump your voltage a little at a time. If you have a good enough loop you should hit 4.8. I am not to familiar with the clocks of a 4100 series, but should be close to the 8100 series, but from what i have seen the 4-6 series need slightly more volts to run at the some clock speeds. The max safe voltage I would take is about 1.5 unless you want the chip to die, they supposedly can handle up to 1.55 but for 24/7 i have yet to see this. This is just a quick start there is plenty of info in the amd threads if you look and search.



p.s. also use a mixture of multiplier and bus speed to increase the clock speeds. multi will just overclock the cpu while the fsb(front side bus) overclocks other parts along with the cpu such as memory speeds. 229(busx21(multi) i get 4.84 ghz.

thanks pwnzilla i'm stuck at 4.2 and will try slowly increasing volts to get my 4.5 idk why anyone would need more than that for 24/7 lol 4.0 is stable at 1.2 but i'm power hungry for 4.5.
